Shrimp Bisque

"This is a very good soup. Make sure if you buy the shrimp frozen, that you rinse the shrimp. A few years ago I made the mistake of letting someone put the shrimp in it, and just put all of it in the soup. Fishy taste. Next time I try, I might use heavy whipping cream instead of half and half for a more thicker soup."

"This is a great recipe! I found the chunky garlic and herb tomato sauce, it was Del Monte. It is a little more of a soup than a stew, but I wouldn't change a thing. The left over soup in your bowl tastes very good. The only thing I would recommend is using a bigger pot. In the skillet, I had to be very careful not to stir this up too much in fear it would spill on the oven. I live in the Chicago area and with the weather at -10 with out the wind chill, it warmed us up really fast. The spicy V8 juice had just a little kick and warmed us up even faster. I will definitely make this again!"

"I like this recipe, it does taste good, but I need to make a few modifications. It is just Bisquick in it and very little veggies and soup. Next time I will add more soup and a little less Bisquick mix. Hopefully this will tats a little better."

"I made this for a family get together. It was a hit! I was worried about the reviews about too much lime, but it was perfect. The pie was tart, but that's a summer pie and when you use whipped cream, it balances the tartness. It took me 5 limes to get the 1/2 cup. Before I put it in the Jell-O mix, I used a colander to not get all the pulp in the mix. I put slices of kiwi fruit and strawberries on top for decoration. Everyone loved it! Thanks Betty Crocker!"

"I made this pie again this year. I found that taking a lime and rolling it hard against the counter top helps to juice it easier. Also use softer strawberries to crush. Use firmer strawberries to garnish. I got the same response as last time that it was great."

This recipe is SO good! It tastes just like the take-out Chinese food, only you know exactly what is in it. It's healthy, quick to make and delicious!! I will keep making and maybe substitute with broccoli.

I made this for our four year anniversary. I should have at least prepared the herbs before hand. It was really good. I will start to make this more often. My husband and I were very impressed!

This is so easy to make. I made this a while ago when I was 17 or so for Christmas. Everybody loved it! It was the highlight of dinner. I've made it every since then.

This was OK. I would make it again, but with less sauce. It was really sweet. At the bottom of the bowl was some noodles with all the sauce. I would recommend using less orange marmalade and less of the sauce. Other than that, it was good. Hopefully next time it will be great.
